told we are at the edge of a fiscal cliff. we did not arrive there by not paying enough taxes. the federal government spends insane amounts of money and even by reducing us all to serfs, the taxes will not cover the spending. well said. here's jerry from lamar. she said, please stop spending our money. walk away from the table if they're not willing to stop wasting our hard-earned money. reform the entitlements and lower the taxes. nothing else in my opinion is acceptable. do not go back to the clinton era. that administration led use in a recession and do not raise the inheritance tax. and then listen to this, she said, i am from a family of farmers. that will kill our family and many others and make it impossible to keep farms that have been in our family for generations. that is the most unfair tax there is. this country will not survive more blows to small business and the middle class. stop the insanity and stop it soon. and finally from patrigsa in jefferson city, she said, i want to voice my opinion on what's happening in washington right now. politicians have put us in this

differences between their two plans to avoid the fiscal cliff. boehner says while he considers himself a positive guy he is not convinced an agreement is imminent. >> i was born with a glass half full. i remain the most optimistic person in this town. but we've got some serious differences. >> that's an understatement. the congressional campaign committee is launching a new set of radio and tv ads going after 21 tea party republicans in the house standing in the way of extending the middle class tax cuts. here is an example of the dramatic tv spot after california congressman gary miller. you that holiday season, if you make only one phone call, send only one e-mail, tell congressman gary miller don't drive us off the cliff! >> not bad. the president has used the phrase holding the middle class hostage when he talks about republicans who want to protect the rich at the expense of everyone else so the ads direct people to the web site g.o.p. hostage takers.com. where they aim to collect a half a million signatures in support of a house vote on the senate tax cut bill that's already pass
